As a politically-active, hippie lawyer, one of the organizations I receive emails from is the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). I recently received this gem, inviting me to a free discussion:
St. Paul: Organized with our ally OutFront Minnesota, this next event will cover the significant progress that is being made within the LGBT community, from the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" to the rapidly evolving legal struggle for marriage equality. Featuring Sharon McGowan, Attorney, Appellate Section of Civil Rights Division at the U.S. Department of Justice and Anthony Winer, Professor of Constitutional Law at William Mitchell.
Advances in LGBT Equality in the Age of Obama
Wednesday, October 12, 7:00 p.m.
William Mitchell College of Law, Mitchell Auditorium, 578 Summit Ave.
This event is free and open to all.
Refreshments will be provided.
Since this is an event "open to all" I thought I would advertise it on the blog where like-minded and/or interested people could be made aware of it. It's in my calendar, I hope to see some of you there!
